Welcome to the Biomechanics of Animal Locomotion Laboratory at the Department of Zoology, Tel-Aviv University. We study the physiology, ecology and evolution of animal locomotion using comparative biomechanics. Our research approach provides insight into the adaptation of animals for locomotion within the constraints imposed by biological and physical principals.
To this end, we use modeling, simulations and experiments (in the lab and in the field) to break down locomotion to its bio-mechanical components (for more information visit the Research page).
